      Time Dilation Techniques

      Please post time dilation techniques here if you have done it or would like to try it.

      I have only done it a couple times. What i did was pluck at the fabric of time and space. It bounced like a bubble pane.

      I have little idea what you mean by time dilation (I'm thinking extending a dream to a bajillion years/other time units) and even less idea how did you get to the fabric of time and space and how did you see and/or "pluck at it". But I'm rather curious about it.

      I mean expanding time (within the dream) to make dreams longer, or to make a lot of dream-time pass in a short amount of waking life time. When I did the plucking thing, I saw the fabric of time and space, like a bubble pane between me and myself. (The dream was in 3rd person at this point.) I pinched at it and pulled a little bit, then let go. The whole dream wiggled.

      Another thing that works for me is staying in one place for a long time.

      I had a very long dream once in which I was a character in a movie. While I don't think I was asleep for very long, I felt like the dream was about 2 hours/ the length of a feature film. There were a lot of plot twists and story pieces so I suppose this is why it felt so long.

      Someone in suggested me to 'make a clock' and make myself believe that I will not wake up until the clock reaches 12:00, or something likewise, so... I decided to actually make that clock (well, not REALLY made it, rather photoshopped it =) )
      The "D" stands for "Dreaming", the "A" stands for "Awake". I'll make myself believe that I will not... scratch that... I WILL NOT wake up until the white dot reaches "A"

      Well, if anyone here has tried Shrooms those things have a SERIOUS impact on time! Seconds feel like minutes, and minutes literally feel like hours. Time will never go slower then it will on shrooms. You can have hundreds of thoughts, ideas, convos, etc, and only take up one minute. You will be amazed by how slow time goes. .. Slight similar to weed.

      Since time is relative, you can change how you perceive it.

      One example, relax, and focus on time, make it go slow, use your internal clock to really focus on how time passes. Look at a hand on a watch... Time can actually appear to move slower.

      With me, I remember the Shroom trip, and I can literally make my dreams take the same pace. I can have dreams which feel last hours and hours if not a whole day, or to the opposite effect, have them last mere minutes. It all has to do with the way you process time.

      Since your mind communicates at roughly "268 miles/hr", and your brain is less then a foot long, it is almost instant. With that said, ideas, memories, and even dreams can virtually take place at the same speed, but giving the dreamer the same speed as well, changing perception of time.

      That's why it's called a trip! I agree.

      Walms's Rather involved time dilation technique:

      Step one: place a part of your dream body against the dream and look at it. I focus on my hand against a wall or the ground. Close one eye, look in between the fingers so your hand and the part of the dream is still in your vision, placing no importance on either part. Begin counting upwards. 1 breathe in, 2 breathe out etc. While at the same time imagining the numbers as units of dream time stretching out. i imagine the seconds of waves stretching.

      My advice with this: if the dream starts stretching... stop what you are doing and go back to stabilizing the dream or it will fall apart fast. You know it's working when a force starts trying to move your hand around, you'll see your arm wavering around a bit.

      Star with low numbers. count to ten at first. when you get the feel for it count higher for more effect.

      I am still experimenting with time dialation. I am trying Raven Knights method and Walms method and I hope to creat my own technique that uses a dream devise to do the work form me. The times I have tried Ravens technique, which is to visualize a clock that you add more numbers than twelve to increase the time, did seem to make the dream more stable and last a bit longer than I expected but the lucids where at the end of the REM periods and only about 5 min so I can't really know for sure.

      The techniqu I have planned would look like a time turner from harry potter. a circle pendant with a hour glass in it on a pivot. Lets say the sand is the sands of time or something. The speed the sand falls through represents real time and can also be use to get an idea of how much dream time you have left at your current stability leval. If you turn the pendant once it will slow down the dream perception time by double what it was before. Continue spinning to continure doubling time. You should be able to visualy see the sand fall slower. I hope this could make a technique that is consistant and dosn't take as much direct focus of the dreamer. I will experiment with that technique latter though because I'm buisy with other stuff and I guess I need to get some sand of time first.

      I once sped up my perception of time by 'fast forwarding' 5 times in a row. The dream seemed to last several hours.

      I tried something similar last night, but this time only once (in a broader distribution), and was treated with another lucid dream that seemed to last for hours.

      The technique itself is fairly abstract, and relies on raw archetypes and emotional control, along with a touch of will. I would literally have no idea how to go about describing it, and doubt it would reproducible by anyone but me. =/

      Still, to sum it up, I drew directly from the idea of 'speeding up time,' recreated the emotional 'click' I felt when I did it the first time, and then willed for 'action.' Fairly straightforward in theory, but takes a bit of finesse to get exactly right. The next time I think to try this, I'll let you all know how it goes.

      I actually think I know what you're talking about. It's basically how everything works in a lucid dream. You just had to make yourself believe it in order for it to happen. You can force yourself to believe you will perceive time slower, and depending on your dream control it may work!
      I haven't been lucid lately, but i will try several time dilation techniques and see if they work !

      It has nothing to do with belief. In fact, I doubted it could be done, even while doing it. Luckily, proper dream control trumps the whole belief myth every single time.

      Past few lucids I've had, I made a watch with a countdown on it, I watch it count down to 0 then I forcefully end the dream, i've done this for a few dreams. I'm trying to train my SC to have that timer to 0 be the time the dream ends without my interference. I could then imagine slowing that timer down, think that might work, I need the opinion of at least semi-experts.

      PS. If any of you know Zezarict, that's me, I forgot my password which is why I haven't been on

      Please explain what you mean by the "belief myth," because I can't figure out why sometimes my control is awesome, and sometimes it sucks, because I always believe.

      Same theory as mine, basically. I still haven't given it a shot, I've been busy with school, but I'm looking forward to try it in my next lucid

      how about making everything but you go in slow motion?
      that could fool your brain.
      when i have a lucid dream the first thing I will do isorder a pizza.

      PIZZA
      pizza is sacred.

      that's a great idea.

      so is eating in a lucid dream, because it engages four senses, five if the food is crunchy.

      MM dream cookies.

      I havn't worked on my time dialation technique in a while I have some more important goals first. I'm hoping my dream guide can help me with it but I havn't found them yet so ya. Also when I do a Zelda dream I will see if I can't use the ocarina of time to dialate time.

      I didn't know this. Maybe eating a crunchy food in a lucid dream would be an amazing way to stabilize the dream? I'm definitely trying this tonight.

      I like to chew gum in my lucids whenever I am at my house. Infact I eat any food I see pizza, cookies, chips its all extra tasty and is a realy fun way to keep the dream stable.

      A thing that works irl is thinking of alot of stuff at the same time. Keeps your brain busy and time seems to flow slower.Always do it before i go to school when i wake up. I hate getting up lol.Gonna try some of this in my LD that is gonna happen tonight(hopefully).And a little question-Whenever i close my eyes in my dream , well consciously, i tend to wake up when opening them. kinda sucks so any ideas?
